The company's previous green bars have been replaced with a more decent dark grey, giving more focus on the images. The homepage now features a hero image in accordance with the global trend to showing larger images on their front sides. The hero image contains a large search bar offering customers a quick entry to find images.
This is how the new Depositphotos Website looks
Below the entry part Depositphotos shows off their four areas of content: Commercial Photos, Illustrations, Editorial Content and Video in a nice grid overview.
One of the key goals of the relaunch was to adapt to the users abilities to view and use the site on different devices, be it their desktop computer, tablet or mobile phone. “Now Depositphotos has become incredibly convenient to view from a computer or mobile devices, since its design and control elements are easily transformed and can adapt to any screen resolution.” – Elena Flanagan-Eister, Depositphotos CEO
New features introduced with Depositphotos website relaunch
Depositphotos has been one of the fastest growing websites offering licensing of images, videos and illustrations in the microstock field. Its library has grown to over 22 million files created by artists from their community around the world with more than 1 million buyers looking for content. To allow users to access these amounts of images, an improved search with new algorithms and more search features has been implemented in the new website.
The option to exclude the growing amount of Editorial content – which can not be used for advertising – comes in handy for clients looking for images to promote their business. The image orientation feature allows the buyer to quickly limit their search results to the images fitting their design needs, be it for online or print uses.
Finally, part of the relaunch was the addition of more currency options for potential buyers: Beyond the payments in common currencies like the US Dollar or the Euro, buyers in many more countries will be able to pay in their local currency. At the start, Depositphotos has added the local payments options for buyers in Russia and Ukraine and plans to add more countries in the future.
